Turn About Is Fair Play
Ever heard that expression? Maybe the banker neighbor should think about that. He didn't like it when we used to trap wild hogs and sell them so he installed a high deer proof fence. When John was missing a cow he wouldn't permit him to go into his property to look for it. He said he would look but today John did him a biggie. When we were leaving the back forty this morning John said is that a cow down there by the creek? Nooo I said it's a deer and it has biiiig horns. It was an exotic and beautiful. It had to come from Mr. Banker's side but how, with that tall fence? It was almost tame. When we got home John called him to tell him his deer was on the wrong side of the fence. So John went back out to meet him and his son and grandson with a tranquilizer gun. They looked the place over and no deer, so John gave him a key so he can go back and look for the deer and we will look Monday when we go feed the cattle again. Mr. Banker was very appreciative now, as he said the deer cost him $6,000. Duh! Yep we were smart enough to figure out it was an expensive deer.
